John Elliott sweats are great if you're anorexic and the only exercise you do is moving the mouse to click post on SF.

No, escobars have a low crotch and the terry is very forgiving. They aren't "technical" but they have just as much freedom of movement as Nike tech sweats if that's necessary, but I'm not calling them the best solution for trail running and oly lifting, just a nice pair of sweats.

John Elliott sweats are great.
W+H cabin fleece is pretty great.
OAMC also make good, marginally technical sweats.
Rick?

 

What size do you take in JE? I always thought they were for people who don't lift as I don't see how they could accommodate thigh mass.

 

Rick is too conspicuous, can't be wearing dropcrotches to the gym, would get weird stares.

XL in old escobars and a Large in the olive pair (apparently those were cut different). They stretch a lot fwiw, the large looked very tight to begin with but after a day the loosen a lot.
I mean they aren't a loose pair of sweats but considering they are regularly seen on running backs and NBA players I don't know where the idea that they are for anorexics come from.

post #1206 of 1253

Are the black ones currently listed on their site the new version or the old? The measurements for XL look the most fitting. Also, do you have any experience with the villain hoodies?

 

Any recs for gym/running shorts? Black, minimal branding. I wear a generic pair of Nike running shorts, some threading have come loose, looking for something more durable.

They would be the new cut. My XL's are about 3 years old, from the very first release, the olive L's I have are from about 1 year ago.
post #1209 of 1253

Thanks. The measurements for the L look really tight, I don't like how they fit on the model either, look more like leggings than sweatpants.

Defiantly not fashion related but Arc'teryx mainline and Lululemon shorts are pretty great. I use my Arc shorts for technical trails and paddling. Been wearing my Lulus for two seasons on the boat and there no pilling at all on the bum region.

Deciding between leggings

 

Arc'teryx ones which aren't merino, Phase SL and Phase SV, not sure what the difference is between the two:

and Ibex woolies which are 100% merino

My only concern is that the arc'teryx ones aren't completely black, and that the merino ones won't be stretchy enough. Suggestions?

post #1212 of 1253

SL and Sv denote superlight and severe weather respectively. You'll find the SV to have a higher yarn denier, thicker and resultantly warmer. The SL is ideal for layering as I've found it to be somewhat sheer. 

 

If stretch is a concern and you want merino, try the Arc Rho

post #1213 of 1253
If merino not being stretchy enough is your main concern, it shouldn't be.
I have 100% merino leggings from Isaora, icebreaker and woolpower and then 2 other pairs from icebreaker that are a merino/poly blend (one is 80 merino/20 poly and the other is something like 65/35).
Merino is very stretchy for a wool (obv not to the degree of poly or something but it will surprise you).
Isaora has the best cut for me but it's thin, if they used a heavier weight they would be perfect, I still wear them a lot as a base layer in the winter under jeans and stuff or when I'm training outside in the summer but the woolpower ones have a better weight and feel to them.
post #1214 of 1253
I have some older Arc SV leggings and they are decent. Fairly warm, while still being thin enough. I do prefer my IceBreaker ones over the SV's however.

Why do you want stretchy leggings? And how stretchy do you need them to be? I use my IB ones for active stuff and never had a problem with mobility at all.
post #1215 of 1253

My uniqlo longjohns lost a bit of stretch after a few washes, that was my only concern. Not about mobility.

 

These are the icebreaker ones?
